Good Omens Vinyl

Debut Vinyl Release
Original Soundtrack by David Arnold
DLP on “Heavenly Blue” and “Hellish Red” Vinyl
Released 16th August 2019
Composer David Arnold’s soundtrack to the highly anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 comic fable makes its debut on vinyl.
Amazon Prime's six episode mini-series follows the odd couple, angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) in their quest to sabotage the end of the World, delivering a tongue in cheek adaptation of this powerful and funny story.
From David Arnold, the award-winning composer of Sherlock and Casino Royale, comes a soundtrack that perfectly complements Good Omens’ drama and visual sensibilities. At times nostalgic and eerie but always varied, beautiful and full of excitement, this robust, yet funny music entity has become another character in the story. Here, Arnold has created a contemporary soundworld for heaven and hell. Tori Amos performs A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square as a closing song.
David Arnold is one of the UK’s leading film composers, composing scores for blockbusters including Stargate, The Chronicles of Narnia: the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Hot Fuzz, Paul, Independence Day, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Casino Royale. The Good Omens TV series launched on Amazon Prime Video around the world in May 2019.

Reviews

“…his (Arnold’s) quirky, winking approach makes for a fun, dynamic listening experience.”
FSM 4.5*

With such a lot of great new small screen drama being made for TV and streaming, it’s no wonder big-screen composers are being lured into longer-form projects. Emmy-winning composer David Arnold follows his popular scores for Sherlock with the BBC/Amazon Studios’ show Good Omens. Based on Terry Pratchett’s book, the tale of angels and demons on earth is darkly humorous and Arnold’s wide-ranging score matches it with gothic horror and comic swagger. The main title theme, a bounding waltz, is wonderfully tongue-in-cheek and a far cry from the composer’s brilliant and ballsy Bond scores. A rollicking trip to hell and back on two discs.
